School Admissions Management System

OpenApply is a School Admissions Management System seamlessly guiding parents from first enquiry, through admissions and into enrolment at your school. With OpenApply your school admissions office can spend less time handling paperwork, collecting documents, and performing other admin work and more time on connecting with prospective families to enrol mission-appropriate students for your school.
